Bayern Munich

Kovac refuses to discuss Bayern double chances

20th April 2019, 12:40 by Craig Smithson

Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac is just focusing one one game at a time after rebuffing questions about achieving a domestic double.

The 47-year-old Croatian recovered from a slow start in his debut season at the Allianz Arena to guide the Bavarians a point clear of rivals Borussia Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga as they look to defend their title this term.

Bayern have also reached the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal, where they will travel to face Werder Bremen on Wednesday.

However, with a Bundesliga home clash against seventh-placed Bremen up first on Saturday, Kovac just wants to focus on one game and one competition at a time.

When asked about a possible double this term, Kovac told the club's website: "We need to focus on the first game, we have to win that first.

"We're up against an opponent in really good form. They're still unbeaten this year and have scored in every game."

On his own side, he added: "Things are going well of late. We've played really well, scored a lot of goals and conceded very few. The team feels assured now."
